ACKNOWLEDGMENT 

The acreage, production and value statistics in this bulletin are official state and 
USDA estimates prepared by the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The county 
and area detail were made possible by the participation of the Department of Food and Re- 
source Economics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. The Bureau of State 
Markets, Florida Department of Agriculture, and the County Extension Agents, University 
of Florida, Cooperative Extension Service, were also very helpful in supplying area and 
county information. Shipment statistics were provided by the Market News sections of the 
Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. 

Grower organizations have provided valuable assistance and data throughout the 
season. These groups include the Florida Celery Committee, Florida Tomato Committee, 
Florida Sweet Corn Exchange, South Florida Vegetable Exchange, Zellwood Sweet Corn Ex- 
change, and North Florida Growers Exchange. Sales agencies and transportation firms pro- 
vided the inputs necessary to complete the statistical story. 

Foremost, the growers, shippers and processors volunteered most of the basic data 
used in developing these official statistics. The public spirited cooperation of these individ- 
uals and groups is appreciated. 

Fieldmen James Spires, Immokalee; Charles Robertson, Homestead; Wallace Jacobs, 
North Palm Beach; and Larry Amlong of Palmetto collected much of the basic acreage, pro- 
duction and price statistics in this bulletin. This report was assembled under the direction of 
Ed C. James, Gerald H. Moody and Carl A. Ouzts of the Florida Crop and Livestock Report- 
ing Service and E. F. Scarborough, Bureau of Market News. The authors also wish to thank 
Becky Altman, Jackie Bowen, Marilyn Clark, Diana Clingan, Ray Crickenberger, Linda 
Fisher, Joe Galant, Kitty Hildreth, Barbara Palmer, Tommy Scherer, Pat Todd and others of 
the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service who assisted in compiling and preparing 
this report.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



SEASONAL GROUPS-During the growing season, 
estimates were prepared for most crops on a six month sea- 
sonal group basis. The periods are for the crop year July- 
December and January through June. The two six month 
periods were combined in this publication into a crop year 
total for all crops. Production sold or utilized is shown by 
months. 



PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which 
has been planted for harvest during the crop year. Acreage 
lost and replanted to the same crop in time for harvest in the 
same quarter is counted only once. Acreage harvested and 
planted again to the same crop is counted twice. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially 
or completely harvested. Acreage lost before or at maturity 
through natural or economic causes is not included in the 
acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the average production per acre of mer- 
chantable quality harvested and sold or utilized. 

PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested 
and sold or utilized. 

UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equiv- 
alent price received, f.o.b. shipping point basis and encom- 
passes all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. Included are 
packing charges, selling charges, precooling, top ice, or other 
costs which contribute to the value of the product at ship- 
ping point. The value per unit for quantities sold to proces- 
sors is the average value paid for usable quantities, on a 
"delivered to plant door" basis. This value includes transpor- 
tation and other normal costs incident to delivery at plant 
door. 



TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of produc- 
tion sold or utilized based on the unit value. Cullage and 
other quantities not sold or utilized because of natural or 
economic factors are excluded. 

OTHER COUNTIES include harvested acreage for 
all counties for which either published data would result in 
the disclosure of individual operations or acreage totals for 
specific commodities are of minor importance in the state. 

AH shipments and unloads, rail, truck, air and boat, 
are recorded nationally in 10,000 pound units each day. 
Aimual releases are in 1,000 cwt. In this publication, ship- 
ments and unloads for some commodities were converted to 
most common trading units. Rail and piggyback weights and 
conversion factors were determined by several Market News 
Service field offices. Mixed car (raU) loadings by stations 
have been prorated by commodities. 

Where possible, the national Market News Service 
in Washington, D. C. has established a single uniform weight 
per conmiodity to be used nationally in converting to wei^t 
units for the various means of transportation. Weights per 
common container used and number of units per rail car or 
truck may be obtained by writing the MNS office in Winter 
Park, Florida. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT~The official 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a wei^t 
basis. For this bulletin, the official estimates for most vege- 
table crops have been converted to what is beUeved to be the 
most commonly used containers. If changes in container 
wei^ts are necessary, all data pertaining to the produc- 
tion of the commodity in question is revised to maintain 
comparability between years. The table below gives the net 
weight used per container and the number of containers per 
hundredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1981-82 VEGETABLE SEASON 



The farm value of Florida grown vegetables, melons, 
potatoes and strawberries sold in the 1981-82 crop year 
totaled $927.4 million, up $64.6 million from the 1980-81 
crop year. Acreage harvested was 3 percent below the pre- 
vious year. Crops showing the greatest declines in harvested 
acres were cabbage, sweet com, lettuce, radishes and tomatoes. 
Crops with the largest gains in harvested acres were snap 
beans, squash and strawberries. Crops increasing in value 
were snap beans, cabbage, sweet com, eggplant, escarole, 
lettuce, radishes, squash, tomatoes, watermelons and straw- 
berries. Crops with lower total values than the previous year 
were carrots, celery, cucumbers, green peppers and potatoes. 
Except for strawberries, most of the increases in value were 
due to higher season average prices. Strawberries, which rose 
$24.5 million as a result of gains in production and prices 
showed the greatest increase in value. Next was lettuce which 
increased $20.8 million, tomatoes, $9.7 million, and sweet 
com, $6.9 million from a year ago. Potatoes and green pep- 
pers showed the greatest declines, down $12.6 rrdllion and 
$8.9 million, respectively, from the previous year. 

Average yields for cucumbers, eggplant, escarole, 
potatoes, squash and tomatoes increased over the previous 
year but yields declined for snap beans, cabbage, carrots, 
celery, sweet com, lettuce, green peppers, radishes and straw- 
berries. 

Season average prices for cabbage, carrots, celery, 
sweet com, eggplant, escarole, lettuce, radishes, watermelons 
and strawberries were higher than a year ago. Prices for snap 
beans, cucumbers, green peppers, potatoes, and tomatoes 
were lower than the previous year. Squash prices were un- 
changed. 

Land preparation was active in most areas of the 
state during July but generally hot, dry weather Umited 
plantings. Growing conditions in August were mostly good 
except for heavy rains late in the month. Plantings were on 
schedule except in Dade County where tropical storm 
Dennis caused heavy flooding. Rainfall was variable in 
iSeptember and October with heavier amounts along the 
lower East Coast. Irrigation became steady in the drier local- 
ities during October. Wet and windy weather in early Nov- 
ember interrupted harvesting and planting, particularly in 
the lower East Coast area. 

Weather in December was adverse as a series of cold 
fronts moved over the state. On December 11, freezing tem- 
peratures and frost extended southward to Lake Okeechobee. 
Record breaking low temperatures occurred on the 19th and 
20th when an arctic air mass with frigid strong winds invaded 
the state. Temperatures dipped to near 20 degrees in spots of 
"outh Florida. Damage to some tender crops was heavy in the 
bnmokalee-Everglades area. The remainder of December was 
mostly mild. 



Cold fronts were numerous in January but the only 
severe freeze occurred on the 12th. Temperatures fell into 
the 20's in the vegetable areas. Some acreage was lost and 
damage was moderate to heavy, particularly to older plants. 
A brief warming trend with rain was followed by another 
cold front with li^t to moderate frost after mid month. Mild 
to cool temperatures with scattered showers prevailed for the 
rest of the month. 

February was generally mild with mostly normal to 
above normal temperatures in the winter vegetable areas. 
Rainfall was variable except for some general rains about 
midmonth. Irrigation was very active in the drier localities. 

Temperatures in March were mostly above normal with 
periods of unseasonably warm weather. Statewide rains of 
significant amounts with reports of large hail in central 
Florida occurred in early March. Midmonth was fair and dry. 
A cold front that stalled over south Florida in late March 
brought 2 to 4 inches of rain to most areas. Flooding occur- 
red in Palm Beach County which had up to 10 inches of rain. 

Early April was a period of showers, locally severe 
thunderstorms and strong winds. Plant damage was variable. 
Some serious flooding occurred in the north central area. 
Hail and high winds caused heavy damage in the Sanford 
area. Mid April was mostly hot and dry. More rain fell in late 
April with heaviest amounts along the lower East Coast. 
Harvest was in full swing for some crops while others were 
decliiiing seasonally. 

Much of May was fair and dry with normal to below 
normal temperatures. Irrigation was very active. Tropical air 
combined with upper air disturbances produced wi(kspread 
and above normal shower and thunderstorm activity for late 
May. Cumulative rainfall for the year was above normal for 
most stations. Harvest was very active for some vegetables 
but declining for others. 

Hot days and warm nigjits dominated the weather 
picture during June in the vegetable areas. Humid tropical air 
produced above normal shower and thunderstorm activity in 
early Jime. Heavier amounts fell in south Florida as Hurri- 
cane Alberto approached the coast before dissipating. The 
following week was mostly hot and dry. The remainder of 
June was wet with frequent thunderstorms and above normal 
rains almost state vvide. Harvest was essentially complete for 
most crops in the major vegetable areas by the end of June. 

Most of the weather data for this summary was suppli- 
ed through the National Weather Service, U. S. Department 
of Commerce, Ruskin, Florida. Information on the effects of 
weather on crops was provided by the Florida Crop and 
Livestock Reporting Service fieldmen.

SNAP BEANS 
1981-82 



Florida growers produced 4.0 million bushels of bush 
and pole beans during the 1981-82 season for fresh and pro- 
cessing utilization, up 9 percent from a year earlier. Acreage 
harvested for fresh and processing totaled 48,300 acres, up 
13 percent from the 42,600 acres harvested during the pre- 
vious season. The freeze in January resulted in some lost 
acreage. The average yield for the 1981-82 season was 82 
bushels per acre for fresh market and 100 bushels per acre 
for processing, as compared with 85 bushels and 133 bushels, 
respectively, for the previous year. 

The average f.o.b. price of $10.33 per bushel for fresh 
market was 6 cents less than the previous year. Prices were 
high in January and February because suppUes were reduced 
by the January freeze. At $3.00 per bushel, snap beans for 
processing were down 45 cents from last season. Total value, 
at $39.7 miUion, was 8 percent above last year. 

Bush beans are grown in all areas of Rorida with the 
exception of the east central and southwest areas. The south- 
east continues to be the major producing area. Pole beans are 
grown primarily in Dade County, with small acreages in 
Gadsden and Marion counties and the west central area. 



EarUest fall supplies of snap beans originate from west 
Florida. The northern and west central areas, the Everglades 
and southeastern districts also provide fall production. The 
southeast is the sole source of supply during the winter. The 
other areas resume production in the spring. 

Snap bean production extended from late September 
into mid June. The fall crop peaked in December. Marketings 
declined in January and February but less than last year. Pro- 
duction for the season peaked in March. Normally, April is 
the month of peak production. About 19 percent of the 
fresh marketings occurred in March. 

Variable weather influenced the bean crop. Locally 
heavy rains in the fall delayed plantings or necessitated re- 
seeding in some areas. Cold weather in December slowed 
growth. The January freeze resulted in variable plant damage 
and some lost acreage. The remainder of the winter was 
generally mild. Heavy rains during March and April hurt the 
crop in the Pompano area. Hail damage and disease problems 
also contributed to lower production. Spring weather was 
generally favorable. Quality was mostly good but yields were 
variable. 



CABBAGE 
1981-82 



Florida growers produced 5.8 miUion crates and bags 
of cabbage during the 1981-82 season. Production at this 
level is 20 percent less than the previous year and the lowest 
since the 1969-70 season when 5.5 million crates were pro- 
duced. The gross value was $33.6 million, a 24 percent in- 
crease over the previous year's total of $27.1 miUion. The 
average f.o.b. price was $5.75 per crate or bag, up $2.02 
from the $3.73 received for the prior season's crop. The 
higher average price received accounted for the sharp increase 
in value. 

Total plantings were 16,500 acres, down 6 percent 
from the 17,600 planted during the 1980-81 season. A total 
of 14,200 acres were harvested. The average yield of 411 
crates or bags per acre was down by 48 bags from the pre- 
vious season's average. 

Cabbage was available for market in late October and 
continued through June. Producrion during the fall months 
was down from the previous fall. The peak month was April 
followed by March and January. 



The Hastings area, which includes the three counties of 
Flagler, Putnam and St. Johns, is the leading producing area 
in the state. This area accounted for 65 percent of the state's 
production during the 1981-82 season. The leading cabbage 
producing County is St. Johns with 4,700 acres harvested, or 
33 percent of the state's total. 

Planting got underway in late August and early Sep- 
tember. The most active period was October through Decem- 
ber. Transplanting is the main method of planting cabbage. 
Some seed is planted directly into fields but this method 
accounts for a very small portion of the total acreage planted. 

Harvest began in late October, increasing slowly into 
December and tJien picked up sharply in January. A hard 
freeze near mid January damaged the cabbage crop and pro- 
duction dropped off sharply in February. Harvest increased 
in March and peaked during April. Winter production ac- 
counted for nearly 52 percent of the total production, the 
spring months accounted for 39 percent and fall months 9 
percent.

CARROTS 

1981-82 



Production of carrots in Florida for fresh market and 
processing utilization during the 1981-82 season totaled 
921,000 cwt., down 33 percent from the previous season. 
Fresh use constituted 80 percent and processing 20 percent. 
This compares with 78 percent fresh and 22 percent proces- 
sing the previous year. Approximately 21 percent of the 
fresh carrots were mini or finger carrots compared with 16 
percent a year earUer. The remaining 79 percent were the 
regular type carrots. 

There were 9,400 acres harvested from the 10,500 acres 
planted during the 1981-82 crop year. This compares with 
10,500 acres harvested from 11,000 acres planted a year 
earlier. The severe freeze of January 1982 resulted in some 
lost acreage, particularly of young carrots, and plant damage. 
Effects of the freeze, some disease problems, and heavy 



gradeout at times lowered yield and production. Average 
price received for the 1981-82 crop was S14.30 per cwt. 
compared with S 12.30 per cwt. the previous year. Total 
value was $13.2 million, down 22 percent from the record 
$16.8 milUon for the 1980-81 crop. 

The muck soils around Lake Apopka, near Zellwood, 
and in the Everglades area south of Lake Okeechobee provide 
a good medium for growth. By far the majority of carrots are 
grown in the Zellwood area. The mini or finger carrot move- 
ment usually begins in late October or early November and 
ends by late May. Regular size carrots are harvested from 
November throu^ June. Young carrots are subject to cold 
damage during January and February in the Zellwood area. 
Size and quality were mostly good during the 1981-82 crop 
year. 



CELERY 
1981-82 



Florida celery marketings of 5.1 million crates were 
harvested from 9,500 acres during the 1981-82 growing sea- 
son. The average yield of 537 crates per acre compares with 
605 crates the previous year. 

Prices averaged sUghtly higher than the previous year 
and at $7.58 per crate, compared with $7.09 per crate during 
the 1980-81 crop season. Prices during February, March and 
April averaged higher than the same months the previous 
year while prices during November through January and May 
and June averaged lower than the previous year. 

The Everglades, with 83 percent of the harvested acre- 
age in the state, was the foremost area of production through- 
out the season. The north central area supplemented by a 
light supply from the Sarasota area, accounted for the re- 
maining 17 percent of acreage and provided continuous 
supplies during the season. 

Plant bed preparation and seeding were underway by 
mid June. Transplanting got underway in August and became 
active in September. Wet soils in August and early September 
delayed harvest. Transplantings for the season in the Ever- 
glades ended in early April. Transplantings in the central 
area ended in May. Growers in the Sarasota area normally 
planted from October to March. 

Light harvest began in the central area in early Nov- 
ember, and at mid November in the Everglades. Freezing 



temperatures on January 12 caused some problems in celery 
and some seeders developed later. After the January freeze, 
growing conditions were generally favorable. Spraying for 
leaf miners was active in the fall and spring. Celery quality 
was generally good to excellent during most of the winter 
and spring harvest periods. A limited amount of acres were 
passed during the spring. Overall yields were about 1 1 per- 
cent below a year earUer and were well below recent years. 
The heavy drop in yields occurred in the Everglades since 
yields were hi^er in the central area. Some of the reduced 
yields resulted from the January freeze and development of 
seeders. Prices were generally favorable during the midwinter 
months but low in April and May. Approximately 7 percent 
of the crop was not harvested for various reasons. This 
compares with 9 percent not harvested the previous year. 
Some acreage was passed in order to maintain good quality 
celery. 

Celery cutting was most active December through May 
with peak production coming during April and May. Cutting 
was completed in aU areas by mid July. 

Celery is subject to a federal marketing order admin- 
istered by the Florida Celery Committee. Field supervisors 
provided the basic acreage and production data. In coopera- 
tion with the Celery Committee, these data are assembled 
into weekly, monthly and armual reports and published in 
this Aimual Summary. 



CHINESE CABBAGE 
1981-82 



Chinese cabbage is grown primarily on the mucklands 
of the ZeUwood and Everglades areas. The organic soils 
provide a very good medium for rapid growth. Harvest was 
underway by late November and reached a good volume in 
December. Volume declined in January because of the severe 
freeze and then steadily increased until it peaked in April. 



Good supphes were available into May. During April and May, 
Zellwood was providing good suppUes while the Everglades 
were winding down for the season. Light suppUes were avail- 
able into June. Quality was generally good during most of the 
growing season. Shipments for the 1981-82 season totaled 
100,000 cwt. compared with 137,000 cwt. a year earlier.

SWEET CORN 
1981-82 



Florida continued as the Nation's leader in sweet com 
production for fresh market. During the 1981-82 marketing 
year, Florida produced 10.8 million crates of com. This is 
4 percent less than production a year earUer. The decline was 
due primarily to fewer acres. Part of the reduced harvested 
acreage was due to the severe freeze on January 12, 1982 
that destroyed considerable acreage of older com near the 
harvest stage in the Pompano area. Harvested acres totaled 
50,100 compared with 51,900 harvested the previous year. 
Yields averaged 215 crates per acre, down two crates from 
the previous crop year. 

The season average f.o.b. price of $5.68 per crate was 
86 cents more than the $4.82 per crate average in the 1980-81 
crop season. Sweet com ranked second in value of vege- 
tables produced in the state and was exceeded in value 
only by tomatoes. 

First plantings of the season were underway in the 
Everglades and Zellwood areas in July. Seeding ilong the 
southeast coast got underway in early October. First harvest 
began in the Zellwood area after mid September. The crop 
in the Everglades was slowed by heavy rains. Harvest got 
underway by mid October. Harvest ended in December when 
freezing temperatures entered the area on December 20. 



Some acreage was lost. Harvest then shifted to the East Coast 
and later Dade County. Pulling of commercial acreage in 
Dade County started around February 1 and reached good 
volume by late March. The mid January freeze damaged the 
Pompano crop and harvest was light for several weeks. Early 
spring planted fields in the Everglades were damaged and 
some replanting was necessary. 

Harvest of the important spring crop got underway in 
early April in the Everglades area and provided the main 
supply until the Zellwood area came into production in late 
April and early May. The ZeUwood area was the main source 
of supply during June and July. The season ended around 
mid July. 

A small acreage continued to provide supplemental 
supphes from ZeUwood and the west central area during the 
early fall and from Sarasota in the early spring. 

Weather during the growing season was marked by 
heavy rains in the fall and freezes during December and 
January. Yields were reduced somewhat by the adverse con- 
ditions. Growing conditions after the January freeze were 
generally favorable. Quality and ear size improved as the 
season progressed into late winter and early spring. 



CUCUMBERS 
1981-82 



Florida's production of cucumbers for fresh market 
during the 1981-82 crop year was 4.7 rrulUon bushels, up 
about 16 percent from the 1980-81 crop. The 16,100 acres 
planted for fresh market was up 300 acres from the previous 
year. Fresh market harvested acres totaled 15,300, an increase 
of 400 acres from a year earlier. Average yield per acre for 
fresh market, at 308 bushels, was up 35 bushels from the 
previous season. Total fresh market production was valued at 
$33.0 million compared with $36.1 million for the 1980-81 
season. The fresh market price for 1981-82 averaged $7.00 
per bushel compared with $8.85 the previous year. 



Supplies in 1981-82 were generally available from 
October through June, with light marketings during the 
winter months and June. Many of the recorded shipments 
moving out-of-state January through March are from off- 
shore and truck imports resold in mixed loads. 



The production of cucumbers is well distributed across 
the state. The southwest area, with 43 percent of the planted 
acreage in 1981-82, is the largest area. The west central area 
accounted for 30 percent of the acreage in the state. The 
west, north, north central, and the southeast areas provide 
the remaining acreage. 

The crop was mostly in good condition during the fall. 
Record breaking cold temperatures December 19-20 essenti- 
ally destroyed the crop in the Immokalee area and caused 
damage in other areas. A hard freeze on January 12 killed 
new plants above ground in the Immokalee area and caused 
heavy damage in other areas. Planting and replanting were 
very active. Remaining winter weather was generally iruld 
and volume rebounded in March. Spring was warmer than 
normal; and irrigation was very active during the dry periods. 
Fruit quality, color, and size were mostiy good during the 
spring season but yields were variable. 



5 



EGGPLANT 
1981-82 



Plantings totaled 2,640 acres, down 15 percent from 
the 1980-81 season. Yields averaged 657 bushels per acre 
compared with 592 bushels for the previous season. Weather 
was generally favorable during much of the fall, and crop 
progress was good. Strong winds in late October and Novem- 
ber whipped plants and scarred fruit. Freezes in December 
caused heavy bloom loss but little plant damage. A hard 
freeze in January resulted in moderate to severe plant 
damage but only light acreage loss. Generally mild weather in 
February was favorable for plant recovery but production 
was light because of earlier bloom damage. Crop condition 
was generally good to very good during the spring season. 
Fruit quality, color, size, and yields were mostly good. 



Production of eggplant, at 1,661,000 bushels, was 
shghtly above last year's production. Total sales increased to 
$9.6 million compared with $9.4 million a year earlier. The 
increase was due to a higher price per bushel because higher 
yields offset lower harvested acres so that production was 
about unchanged compared with 1980-81. The season aver- 
age price of $5.76 per bushel is 9 cents higher than a year ago. 
Compared with a year earlier, prices for most months were 
higher in the fall and spring but lower in the winter. 



The distribution of marketings was generally normal. 
Harvest began in late September, reached a peak in Novem- 
ber, and dropped during the winter, particularly in February. 
Harvest increased rapidly in March and reached a peak in 
May. Peak harvest was a month earUer than usual because 
generally mild weather after the January freeze and above 
normal temperatures during the spring resulted in an early 
maturing crop. Harvest was essentially complete ui early 
July. The southeastern area around Pompano accounted for 
52 percent of the harvested acreage. The northern and central 
areas combined contributed about 38 percent of the acreage 
harvested with the remaining acreage in the southwest. 

Production is generally continuous throughout the 
entire crop year in the southeast and southwest. The crops in 
the western, northern, and central areas are for fall and 
spring harvest only because these areas receive too much 
freezing weather to grow eggplant during the winter months. 

First sales were from cuttings in the western and 
northem areas in late September. Harvest followed the usual 
pattern and progressed southward in the fall, continued 
through the winter in the southern areas, and then moved 
back northward in the spring. 



ESCAROLE-ENDIVE 
1981-82 



Production of escarole and endive during the 1981-82 
season totaled 2.7 miUion crates, down 7 percent from a year 
earlier. The 5^00 acres harvested were down 15 percent 
from the previous year. Several large growers discontinued 
raising escarole and quit fanning completely. Yield per acre 
averaged 512 crates compared with 470 crates the previous 
year. 

Prices during the season averaged $6.65 per crate com- 
pared with $3.91 a year earlier. Prices were higher than a 
year earUer in every month of marketings. Prices were very 
favorable during the December through February period. 
Total value of sales, at $18.0 miUion, was 58 percent more 
than for the previous season and was the highest of record. 
The Everglades, which had 67 percent of the harvested acre- 
age, began seeding in late August and early September. 
Weekly plantings continued through March. Light harvest 



began in late October and early November and was con- 
tinuous into early June. The mucklands around ZeUwood 
provided good volume in the late spring months. The small 
acreage grown around the Lake Placid and Sarasota muck 
soils fiimished supplemental supplies during much of the sea- 
son. 

Sales started slowly in late October and increased to 
good volume by mid November. Marketings reached peak 
levels in February, March and April. Sales were complete for 
the season by early June. 

Rains slowed plantings during the fall and the January 
freeze slowed growth and burned outer portions of plants. 
Growing conditions for the remaining period were generally 
favorable. Quality of escarole was mostly good during the 
season.

LETTUCE 
1981-82 



Rorida lettuce growers produced 2.3 million cwt. 
during the 1981-82 season, down 16 percent from the pre- 
vious year. A 13 percent drop in acreage harvested and a 
slight decline in yields resulted in the decline in production. 
The average yield per acre was 183 cwt. compared with 188 
cwt. for the previous year. Growers harvested 12,300 acres 
compared with 14,200 acres the previous year. The season 
average f.o.b. price of $25.16 per cwt. was well above the 
$13.39 per cwt. received the previous year. Total value 
reached a record $56.6 million for the season. Prices averaged 
above a year earlier for every month of the season. 

Acreage, production and value statistics of lettuce in 
this bulletin combine the various types into a single estimate. 
The types in order of importance include iceberg, romaine, 
Boston, bibb and leaf. 

The Everglades muckland accounted fbr 86 percent of 
the planted acreage and was the source of a continuous 
supply of good quality lettuce which began in late October 
and early November and continued through May. Outside 
the Everglades, ZeUwood is the other major producing area, 
with Sarasota and the Lake Placid mucksoils contributing 
light supplies during most of the season. 



Seeding was underway in late August and early Sep- 
tember. All areas were actively planting by mid October. 
The Everglades and Sarasota areas had continuous plantings 
through March. 



Very light harvest of specialty types was underway in 
late October and harvest continued light until late November. 
Volume gained significantly in December and continued 
heavy until early May. Harvest of the iceberg type began in 
late November. Most iceberg lettuce is planted in the Ever- 
glades. Harvest was completed for all types by late May. 
Volume from the ZeUwood area was light during the winter 
months. Moderate supplies are available from this area during 
the fall and spring months. 



Growing conditions in the fall were hot, humid and 
wet. Frequent showers interrupted planting and slowed 
field work. Several cold fronts slowed growth and caused 
some damage to outer leaves. After the January freeze, 
growing conditions were mostly favorable. Heavy volume was 
available during March and April. Quality was generally good 
throughout the growing season. 



PEPPERS 
1981-82 



Florida produced 7.9 million bushels of peppers during 
the 1981-82 season, slightly below the previous year. The 
average yield of 412 bushels per acre was 5 percent below the 
435 bushels per acre last season. Harvested acreage, at 19,300 
acres, was 5 percent more than the 18,300 acres harvested in 
1980-81. 



The season average f.o.b. price of $7.00 per bushel was 
down from an average of $8.10 for the previous season. The 
total value of $55.6 million was 14 percent below the pre- 
vious year. Prices were gerieraUy below last year except for 
May and June. Prices in February and March were weU below 
last year because adverse weather had much less effect on 
production than a year ago. Peak spring production occurred 
in April. The season then declined and was mostly over by 
the end of June. 



Total planted acreage increased 5 percent over the 
previous season. Increases in acreage for the north, west 
central and southeast areas were partially offset by decreases 
for the north central and southwest areas. The important 
southwest area accounted for 41.4 percent of the state's 
total pepper acreage. The southeast had 32.1 percent; the 
north area, 9.3 percent; the north central area, 8.8 percent; 
and the west central area, 8.4 percent. 

Hot weather and damp-off necessitated spot replanting 
to improve stands during November. Conditions during the 
rest of the fall were generally favorable. The hard freeze in 
January caused variable damage. Older plantings had the 
heaviest damage. Replanting, cutting back and planting 
were active after the freeze. Spring weather was mostly 
favorable except for heavy rains in the Pompano area. 
Yields were fair to good.

POTATOES 
1981-82 



Potato production in Florida in 1982, including both 
winter and spring, totaled 6.7 million cwt., up nearly 3 per- 
cent from the 1981 crop. A total of 30,800 acres were plant- 
ed in 1982, about 1 percent more than the year before. 
Of the total acreage planted, 29,900 acres were harvested, 
the same as 1981. The value of the crop was placed at $60.4 
million, down 17 percent from the previous year. The de- 
cline in the value of the crop was due to a sharp drop in the 
average price received. The price received for aU potatoes 
averaged S8.95 per cwt. compared to Sll.lO in 1981. 

The average yield was 226 cwt. per acre, a new record 
for Florida, exceeding the previous record by 6 cwt. In the 
three county Hastings area (Flagler, Putman and St. Johns) 
the average yield was 240 cwt., down slightly from 1981. 
Spring potatoes grown in other areas of the state had an 
average yield of 2 10 cwt., down 30 cwt. from the year before. 
However, the average yield for the winter crop was 185 cwt.. 



up sharply from the previous winter of 155 cwt. and was 
responsible for pushing the all potato yield to the record 
level. 

In south Florida where the winter crop is grown the 
red skin types are the dominant variety. Most of the winter 
production is sold for table stock. In the Hastings area the 
white skin varieties are the most important. Most of this 
production is used in the potato chip industry. However, 
potatoes used for table stock are increasing in importance. 

Harvest of the winter crop got underway in late Jan- 
uary and progressed slowly through most of March. Winter 
harvest was very active in late March and all of April. Digging 
of the spring crop was underway in late April and was very 
active during May. Harvest was completed in June. Acreage 
abandoimient was about normal, caused mostly from flood- 
ing of low areas and freezing temperatures in January. 



SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1981-82 



Spinach statistics have not been pubUshed separately 
for Florida in recent years to avoid disclosure of individual 
operations. However, data for these seasons have been 
included in the "Other Vegetables" series shown in this 
publication. Data for 1973 and earUer are available upon 



request. Yields per harvested acre averaged about the same 
as a year earlier. Most of the crop is grown in the north 
central areas. The severe freeze in January caused a few 
problems. 



SQUASH 
1981-82 



Florida's production of squash during the 1981-82 
season, at 2.8 mUlion bushels, was 18 percent above last 
year. The total of 16,600 acres harvested increased 12 per- 
cent from the previous year. The yield, at 168 bushels per 
acre, was up 9 bushels from last year. 

The season average price of $9.69 per bushel was down 
3 cents from the 1980-81 season. Total cash receipts amount- 
ed to $27.0 million. Monthly prices were generally above last 
year except during the winter months. 

Florida produces acorn, butternut, yellow crookneck, 
yellow straightneck, white, and zucchini squash. Dade 
County, with 27 percent of the state's harvested acreage in 
1981-82, produces yellow crookneck squash almost exclu- 
sively. The Pompano area, in addition to being a major pro- 
ducing area, is also an important market for squash grown in 
other areas of the state. This is especially true when local 
supplies reach low levels during tiie winter months. The 
southwest area produces a continuous supply of most types. 



Central, north, and west Florida provide a good volume of 
most types during the fall and spring season. 

Squash is one of the few crops grown in Florida that 
is shipped every month of the year, although shipments 
during the summer are light and mostly confined to local 
markets. Conditions were generally favorable during the fall, 
and marketings reached a fall peak in December. Record 
breaking cold temperatures in December killed nearly all 
plants above ground in the southwest area and damaged 
plants in other areas. An arctic front in January resulted in 
lost acreage of older plants and moderate to severe damage in 
younger plants. Replanting was heavy. Generally mild weather 
was favorable to plant recovery but reduced stands in freeze 
damaged fields lowered yields. Spring weather was generally 
favorable but heavy rains and disease problems lowered 
yields in the Pompano area. Peak marketings for the season 
occuned in April. The season was essentially complete 
by the end of June.

RADISHES 
1981-82 



In the 1981-82 crop year, radish plantings amounted 
to 27,700 acres compared with 32,900 acres planted during 
the previous year. Acres harvested totaled 24,500, 16 percent 
below the 1980-81 season. Yield per acre averaged 240 car- 
tons compared with 247 cartons a year earlier. The crop 
was valued at a record $23.8 million, up $3.9 miUion from 
the previous year and 3 percent more than the previous re- 
cord value in 1979-80. The average f.o.b. price was $4.05 per 
carton, up $1.26 from the 1980-81 season. Most monthly 
prices were above the corresponding prices a year earlier. 



Good supplies of both red and white radishes were 
available from Zellwood, Lake Placid, and the Everglades 
from October through May with a light volume going 
into June. The peak fall harvest occurred in December. The 
spring peak occurred in May. Seeding of the 1981-82 crop 
was underway in the Everglades and the north central areas 
in early September. Light harvest was underway in early 
October. In November, considerable acreage was lost to local- 
ly heavy rains in the Everglades. Freezes in December and a 
severe freeze in January resulted in some crop damage. 
Supplemental supplies were available from Lake Placid and 
Sarasota during the year. 



STRAWBERRIES 
1981-82 



Florida strawberry growers produced 8.1 miUion flats 
of berries during the 1981-82 season, up 45 percent from the 
previous year. Harvested acreage totaling 5,000 acres increas- 
ed 56 percent from the previous year. Yields per acre averag- 
ed 1,625 flats compared with 1,750 flats the previous year. 
While yields were lower than the previous year, they have in- 
creased dramatically in recent years. High yielding and early 
maturing varieties have been introduced in the HUlsborough- 
Manatee area in recent years. The f.o.b. return per flat for 
the season was $6.44, an increase of $1.46 per flat over the 
previous season. The value of the crop was $52.4 million, 
nearly double the $27.9 million received for the 1980-81 
season. 

Laying of plastic and other field work was in fuU 
swing by late September and transplanting was very active by 
early October in the important HUlsborough-Manatee area. 
Transplanting was complete by early November. Plants made 



good growth and a few blooms were showing by mid Novem- 
ber. Light harvest got underway by mid December. Ship- 
ments reached a good volume in January and peaked in mid 
March. The January freeze caused some bloom loss and 
slowed growth somewhat. Most growers used sprinklers for 
icing over plants for protection against the freezing tempera- 
tures. Gradeout was heavier than normal after the freeze 
but quaUty and harvest improved by mid February. Market 
prices in January and February were below a year earlier 
while prices in March and April were higher. Growers opened 
most fields to U-Pic operations in mid-to-late March or 
early April. Quality and berry size were generally good dur- 
ing the season. U-Pic harvest continued into May. Harvest 
was underway in Bradford County in mid March. Quality was 
generally good. The harvest was virtually complete in early 
May. Most of the acreage in Dade County was for U-Pic 
and roadside stands.

TOMATOES 
1981-82 



The total value of the Florida tomato crop for fresh 
market and processing was $266.3 miUion-up nearly 4 per- 
cent from the previous season. This was a record value for 
the state. The average price received for fresh tomatoes was 
$5.23 per 25-pound carton, 26 cents less than the previous 
season. 

Total production of 52.4 million 25-pound carton 
equivalents was 8 percent above last season and was the 
reason for the record crop value. Tomatoes utilized for the 
fresh market amounted to nearly 97 percent of the total 
while the remaining 3 percent went to processors. The pro- 
cessing segment is a secondary utilization, usually following 
the fresh market harvest. The Paknetto-Ruskin area account- 
ed for 41.2 percent of the total production and Dade County 
26.0 percent. The southwest which was hurt seriously by the 
January freeze, accounted for 23.5 percent of the total, the 
Ft. Pierce-Pompano area 6.2 percent and the remaining 3.1 
percent was produced in the north, north central and western 
areas of the state. 

The average yield for the state was 1,250 (25-pound) 
cartons, up 247 cartons from the 1980-81 season. Demand 
for Florida tomatoes was good during most of the season. 
Winter production was near normal even though the south- 
west suffered losses from a hard freeze in January. Dade 
County which leads in winter production had no major 
damage from the freeze. Fall production was down from the 



year before. January was the peak month during the winter 
period accounting for 12.6 percent of the total production. 
February production was down, reflecting the damage caused 
by the freeze. The spring production peaked in May, which 
accounted for 26.6 percent of the entire season's total. 
Tomatoes are harvested from late October through early July. 



The Pahnetto-Ruskin area continued as the acreage 
leader with 14,900 acres harvested. Dade County continued 
in second place, harvesting 10,900 acres followed very 
closely by the southwest which harvested 10,800 acres. The 
southwest had some acreage lost due to the freeze. There 
were 2,500 acres harvested in the Ft. Pierce-Pompano area. 
Gadsden County accounted for the largest portion of the re- 
maining acreage. 

Tomato planting got underway in July except Dade 
County which did not get started until the first week of 
September. Planting made good progress during the fall as 
weather was mostly favorable until cold weather around mid 
December caused some problems. In January another freeze 
caused damage to tomatoes, mostly in the southwest. The 
other areas were spared any serious damage. The tomato 
crops were in good condition by the spring months and pro- 
duction was back to normal. Harvest was complete by early 
June in the southern-most areas but U^t harvest continued 
through June into early July in the other areas. 



WATERMELONS 
1981-82 



Total plaritings of watermelons during the 1981-82 
season amounted to 56,000 acres, up 4 percent from the pre- 
vious season. Of the total planted, 48,000 acres were harvest- 
ed, down 2 percent from the year before. Abandonment was 
sUghtiy higher than usual due to mostiy weather related 
problems. Production was placed at 7.9 million cwt., down 2 
percent from the 1980-81 season. The average yield for the 
state was 165 cwt. per acre. The area yields were rather 
variable ranging from 150 cwt. in the north to 210 cwt. in 
the south. 



The average price was a record $6.90 per cwt., up 38 
cents from the previous season. Prices received by growers 
for melons were highest in the south and west centid where 
the harvest begins early. The total value of the crop was a 
record $54.6 million, up nearly 4 percent from the 1980-81 
season. 

The watermelon harvest got underway in late April 
for the first time in five years. The average price in April was 
rather low due mainly to very cold weatiier in the north 



which reduced demand. Production increased sharply in 
May and so did prices. 

There is a small acreage grown in the fall in the south 
and scattered central areas. These acres are usually harvested 
from November through January, depending on weather con- 
ditions. This acreage, yield and production are included in 
the following spring totals. The usual harvest season starts in 
the south in April, progresses northward into the central 
areas during May, the northern areas in June and usually ends 
in the Panhandle in July. 

First plantings were made in the southwest during late 
December. Cold weather in January set the crop back and 
replanting was necessary. A combination of wet and dry con- 
ditions hurt the crop in the northern areas, increasing aban- 
donment and lowering yields. 

Harvest was underway in April, increased rapidly into 
May and peaked in June. Watermelons continued to be 
harvested in July but volume was less than normal. The sea- 
son was over in all areas by the end of July.

OTHER CROPS 
1981-82 



Cantaloups are grown in Florida primarily jn the south- 
west and north central areas. Much of the production is sold 
through roadside stands and local markets. The peak harvest 
period is normally May and June. Harvest begins in the south- 
west and progresses northward seasonally. There are some 
cantaloups grown during the fall months in the southwest 
and the west central areas. Acreage continues at a relatively 
low level. However, this crop is not part of the regular pro- 
gram for vegetables and melons. Researchers continue to 
work toward developing new varieties that will be better 
adapted to Florida's soils and climate. There appears to be 
some promise that acreage may expand in the future. 

Cauliflower is grown in the 5^11wood, Hillsborough- 
Manatee and Everglades areas. Acreage declined from a year 
earher. Supplies are available from December to April. At the 
present time statistics are not available for publication. Ship- 
ment information is recorded by the Market News Service. 
In the 1981-82 season there were 52 thousand cwt. shipped 
out of the state compared with 77 thousand cwt. shipped the 
previous season. This converts to 236 thousand 22-pound 
cartons. 

Tropical vegetable production during the 1981-82 sea- 
son increased from the previous year. Damage from the 
January 1982 freeze was less severe than a year earlier; and 
weather was generally mild for the remainder of the winter. 
Improved fertilization and spray programs during the grow- 
ing season contributed to good yields. By far the majority of 
the acreage is grown in Dade County. Commercial produc- 
tion began in the early 60's. Tropical vegetables is a col- 
loquial expression applied to certain vegetables eaten primar- 
ily by those of Latin American and Carribbean origin. The 
most common name for each crop followed by the scientific 
name is listed below. Other common terms for various vege- 
tables are shown in parentheses. The crops consist primarily 
of bonlato-Ipomeabatata (sweet potato); calabaza-Cucurbita 
fpumpkin);malanga-Xanthesoma caracu or Colocasia esculenta 
(dasheen, yautla); and yucca-Manihot esculenta (cassava, 
crantz, tapioca). The boniato, calabaza andmalanga constitute 
the bulk of the production. The Dade County Agricultural 
Extension Service reported 11,500 acres of tropical vege- 
tables planted in the 1981 calendar year. Peak production 
of malanga occurs in February through April. Efforts are 
xinderway to even out the supply throu^out the year. 
Available land continues to be a limiting factor for all agricul- 
tural production in Dade County. New varieties of calabaza 
are being brought in from Columbia, South America to 



select those that do best in south Florida. Miami is an impor- 
tant point of consumption for the Florida production. Also, 
considerable amounts are consumed in the Tampa Bay area. 
The supplies shipped out of the state are primarily for the 
New York City and Philadelphia areas. 

CoUard, turnip , mustard and other greens are grown 
thoughout the state and centered around large population 
areas and in the muck soils of the Everglades and ZiUwood 
areas. Good volume is available November through March. 
Shipments totaled 57 thousand cwt. during the 1981-82 sea- 
son, 20 thousand cwt. less than a year earlier. 

Okra is grown in many areas of the state during the 
warm season of the year. However, Dade County produces 
okra for local use as well as for shipments to other states. 
Peak production takes place in May and June with a good 
supply in October and November. 

Green onions and l eeks are produced in the north 
central area. Supplies are marketed primarily for local use at 
roadside stands and markets. There are several large pro- 
ducers who ship to other states. Supplies of dry onions are 
limited. Most of the dry onions are produced in southern and 
wast central areas of the state. 

Parsley is available in both the curley and plain types. 
The bulk of the commercial volume shipped to other states is 
produced in the Everglades and Zellwood areas. Light sup- 
plies sold for local use are available from the Sarasota, Lake 
Placid and other areas. 

Southern peas are grown primarily in the ilorthwest, 
west central ana Everglades areas Of Florida. Dade County 
also produces a considerable amount of southern peas. Li^t 
supplies are available from September through December. 
Heavy movement occurs in May and June, especially in north- 
west Florida. A high percentage of the crop is utilized for 
processing. Good suppUes are sold throu^ local markets for 
fresh use. Market News Service shipment statistics for out-of- 
state markets show 19 thousand cwt. for fresh market during 
the 1981-82 season. 

Watercress is available the year around. The major 
source of supply is the Oviedo area. Most of the production 
is shipped to northern and eastern markets in the United 
States. A limited supply is available from local state farmers 
markets, especially in the Sanford area.
